that president obama has not raised taxes while he has been in office. seriously? mitt romney is dropping that argument? he doesn't think president obama has raised taxes? no, not really. his campaign later saying, never mind what mitt romney just said. that's not actually what he believes. sure, he said president obama didn't raise taxes, and president obama didn't raise taxes, but really, mitt romney officially thinks that he did. they have done this over and over and over and over again, on big issues like health reform, on small issues like whether he met a guy or not. and it is a ridiculous technique. i mean, think about what this means for the long run. i mean, the romney campaign is training the country to not believe this guy when he is talking. they're training the country to feel that, you know, wherever you hear mitt romney saying something today, don't worry, it doesn't really matter. it is all subject to revision later. long-term, this is a weird technique. it has been a strange political technique from the get-go this year. but mostly, it has worked for them. them correcting

, what end of tax credits do you want paul ryan and more important mitt romney and what about medicare? what does your plan really amount to? i think the vice president needs to be specific. he needs to focus and he will and he needs to remember that nobody votes based on the vice presidential candidates themselves. joe biden's target tonight in the end is not really paul ryan, it's mitt romney and it's the mitt romney that the president didn't successfully attack last week. >> and, howard, to that point, has romney in some ways made paul ryan's job more difficult, not only by laying out a tax plan that fundamentally doesn't add up but also with his comments this week about abortion, first coming out saying there was no legislation that he was aware of that he would support banning abortion or curtailing abortion and then coming back and saying, i will be a pro life president and i want to defund planned parenthood? has he laid out a difficult challenge for paul ryan himself? >> i think he's laid out a difficult challenge for paul ryan on abortion, for sure. that's an issue that the de

of things they say. so they don't mind paying higher taxes. that was in the past. now they're very frustrated with having been painted as villains last time around. they feel like they helped obama get into office, and then they were painted as these evil wall street bankers which they think is unfair. everyone has their own opinion about what caused the financial crisis, but bankers feel like they've been painted as these villains. they also don't like the boot of government on their neck. it's a lot of the same things i hear from small business owners, saying there's too much regulation that's stopping them from doing their job. banks feel like they also have been just the butt of every regulation that's come out, and it's frustrating to them. you may think they need regulation, but this is one to have main reasons why they've lined up behind romney. megyn: you know, just talking to some wall street folks, and i know a lot of folks who were big, big obama donors last time around who have expressed disappointment in being demonized as fat cat bankers and people who have seen their
